I've seen both spellings, but which is correct, accoustic or acoustic?
acoustic. Not an expert or anything, but I fail to see why there should be two cc's.
Acoustic. Double 'c' is for words like "accelerate" when you're saying "AC" and "celerate" hence using the sound twice (well two different sounds coming from the same letter) When you say it out loud, you can clearly hear that "acoustic" only needs one letter
Both are correct but acoustic is more often used than accoustic.
There's only one correct way to spell 'acoustic'. Like that. Single 'c'.
However, while not wishing to be a smartass, I must add that Davorunner is incorrect in asserting that double 'c' is (always) for words where one is the hard 'c', and the other, the soft 'c'. Like 'accelerate'.
To illustrate, I've written a short story: "Although painfully shy, Cedric was an accomplished singer, whose guitar was much more than a mere accoutrement; accompanying him wherever he went. He found it helpful not only in enabling him to gain more rapid acceptance from girls he would have been too shy to speak to; when instead he sang to them, accompanied by his ever-present accompaniment, the guitar, but also as a powerful accelerant in the process of sweeping them off their feet, and thus enamoured, accommodating his every desire, and acceding to his every whim. Occasionally, one of Cedric's conquests would become somewhat accusatory in the early light of dawn, but more often he would depart their accommodation to the sounds of acclamation. Cedric was never surprised, he was a very accomplished lover,and it was no accident that he became totally acclimatised to the role as the years went by...
If you are referring to music instruments that produces sound without the use of electricity or electronics, then the correct spelling is "acoustic".
The right spelling would be acoustic as provided in various dictionaries.
well the dictionary should have solved this question but since it's asked.....i guess it should be AC

Do you agree with the new logical fallacy? I've seen it very active on HP. Have you?An Appeal to Righteous Indignation similarly attempts to place an idea beyond the reach of critique, but it employs a different mechanism. Rather than suggesting that the idea itself is privileged...

What spelling or grammar errors took you a long time to learn?I can't believe I graduated from college without knowing the rules for "its and it's" -- a newspaper editor had to teach me. My spelling bugaboo was "recommend". I always thought it had two c's and one m. I learned...

How dependent are you on Spell Check?Seeing made up words and misspellings all over HubPages made me wonder how dependent most people are on spell check. I do just fine checking my own work and using a dictionary (although I know I'm not perfect). I also know there are those who type their work...
